Mille Crepe Cakes



This is the Oreo mille crepe cake from First Love Patisserie.
Soft, creamy and surprisingly light.
I did not taste much of the crepe unlike the Cappuccino mille crepe from the same shop.

The Earl Grey mille crepe from Lady M was delicate in its flavour and had a wonderful texture.
Now, if you like it sweet, try the Lady M signature mille crepe cake. 
Heavenly!

Tatted Jade Lariat



Thank you for your great comments in the preview post.
I did start this chain thinking it would make a great eyeglass holder.


It was so pretty and I had all those beads already strung so I decided to tat them all.


I was glad I did and it morphed into a lariat which can be worn several ways.

Tatted in a size 30 HDT from Marilee Rockley called Forest.
Besides the jade bamboo beads, I added Swarovski round crystals, Delica beads, and the lariat ends with two carved jade charms.

Salted Egg Yolk Crab



Anything coated in salted egg yolk and fried tastes good.
Especially if I did not cook it.
We had this at a local restaurant. 
Fragrant and tasty.

Zoroastrian House





While walking in Little India, we came across this. Intricate patterns on the door step. It was closed as it was a public holiday but it did have a signage which identifies it as the Parsi Zoroastrian Association of South East Asia.

New Jade Earrings




I am obsessed with dangling earrings. Lately, it has been jade. I made these for myself. 

The top is very dark green jade in gold filled ear hooks. The jade looks almost black but if you shine a light through it, you can see that it is green.

The second pair is done in 925 silver threaders. The jade is black. 

I love them both.

Star Grass



I got this plant in a small pot but after reading up on it, I realised it is a marshy bog plant that will do well around ponds. The flowers are quite showy. I would love to have a garden to plant different ornamental grasses. Let's call it the grass garden.

Another JS doily WIP




I could not wait to use the new Lizbeth colours on a Jan Stawasz pattern. I love this new colourway called Coral Splash (Col. 188) which I just obtained. Combined with Terra Cotta (Col. 673), it looks pretty good. 

Round 3 of the pattern completed so far but many more to go. In the book, two colours were used: white and cream. This one here looks very different.

I love the colours in this one.
